The bottom fermented, dark Gösser Stiftsbräu is brewed according to old, inherited traditions. With a smoky, roasted nose and a thick and creamy taste on the palate, Stiftsbräu is a sophisticated delight for lovers of a slightly sweet, dark beer. The overall impression that Stiftsbräu creates is one of great harmony and well roundedness. 11.8°

Plovmand (7177) - Helsinge, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear deep amber with a medium off white head. The aroma is sweet tobacco, sweet fruit and light toasted malt. The flavour is tobacco, toasted malt, light fruit and light smoke.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 5, 2012
If you didn’t know any better, you’d think it was a glass of Coke with a frothy white head and a slight haze. Oddly enough there is an aroma of cola nut along with cocoa in the aroma, some dusty grain silo and dark malt. The flavour is very much a manifestation of the aroma with some pecan nuttiness. This is the enduring flavour in the finish which is helped by persistent fine bubbles. A tasty drop.

Poured with a generous head. Big dark colour which looks impressive. However does hold up in the tasting. Little thin on the palate.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Draft at Libreria bar in Tirana Dark brown scattered lace Smells good and bready. The palate is sugary and the malts are underdeveloped and it soon becomes too sweet and cloying; the body can’t keep up with the sugars.

Mörk lager med tydlig kaffedoft. Inte min typ av mörk lager. Smakar kanske godare till kötträtter.

Barreras (1361) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Pours a cola brown with aroma of a Heinekein dark hops. Taste is mildly sweet with a mild bitter aftertaste. Overall a slightly complex beer that has a Europeon taste.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 25, 2012
0.5L bottle. Agree with deScription pretty much, it is not too sweet, good balance. Good appearance, taste and mouthfeel - typical of the style. I liked it a lot!

abemorsten (3378) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2012
0,33 l green twist top bottle at a beach bar in Arbanja. Bottle reads "Gösser Dark Beer" and it’s brewed in Karlovac, Croatia. Pours a clear amber orange with an inch thick, light brown, fluffy head. Light toasted, herbal notes and light malts on the nose. Malt syrup, a toasted sweetness and a pulpy light bitterness. Medium body and light doughy. Light sickening.
